Annual meetings

GENECO arranges two annual meetings, a Winter and a Summer meeting, on selected topics where the you get the opportunity to interact with invited speakers, gain novel skills and learn more about career possibilities inside and outside Academia. We have been very fortunate and have been able to attract top-ranked international researchers within genomic ecology to these meetings.

The Summer Meetings are held at the end of the summer and they are 1.5-day events inclusive of an overnight stay.

The Winter Meetings are held in Lund at the beginning of February and they are single-day events.

Winter meeting 2022 – postponed

Due to the recent increase in Covid-19 restrictions, and the potential for these to continue a while longer, we have taken the decision to postpone our GENECO winter meeting (originally planned for 9 February) until it is possible to meet in person. We will provide an update on this before 1 March.

Summer meeting 2021 – online

The GENECO Summer meeting was held on Aug 26th-27th 2021 digitally. We listened to excellent talks from Prof Edze Westra (University of Exeter), Prof Anna-Liisa Laine (University of Zürich), Prof Alexandra Worden (GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel (Germany) and Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (USA)) & Dr Mattias Jakobsson (Uppsala University). We had a stimulating and timely discussion on the topic on balancing home and work life during prolonged periods of working from home.
